The delay was due to the lawyer being unable to meet with the Magistrate to get permission for her release. All 12 members who had been granted bail are now out of custody. Jenni Williams and Magodonga Mahlangu remain in custody. Their bail had been denied by the High Court. All 14 members will appear in Harare Magistrate’s Court on June 20 on remand.
Three women were arrested in Mutare on June 16 in connection with WOZA Zambia (sarong). One woman was arrested for trying to cross into Mozambique illegally. When police searched her possessions, they found the sarong and demanded to know where she had got it from. Two other women were arrested after police illegally searched their houses and found WOZA t-shirts. All three women were taken to Mutare Central Police Station and questioned. They were asked why they wanted to sell the country to foreigners.’ The three were released after five hours of questioning but told to report back to the police station the next morning. The following morning followed the same pattern before they were released. None of the women have been charged.
